It’s time for Guess That Lonely Heart, a game from way-back-when, where I give you the plot of a romance in the disguise of a lonely heart ad, and you tell me the heroine’s name, the title of the book, and the author’s name. The first to correctly name all three wins a patented, often coveted but never imitated (at least not that I’m aware of) Smart Bitch Title™, crafted lovingly by yours truly with that tricky Smart Bitch Technology (better known as “Photoshop.”)
Get ready, get set, and Guess that Lonely Heart.
Plucky, innocent and educated country miss miss seeks a jaded, titled man who is bored by everything, impressed with little, but not so morally bankrupt that he’d sleep with his mother’s lover’s wife, even if she’s naked and begging and he’s a randy teenager. Thank God. That would be a little too much. Must be passionate, sexually amazing, and possessing of that secret sensitivity that a plucky, innocent and educated miss like me would seek out like a homing missile, even when we’re both up to our ears in some ton scandal or other.
First to identify that lonely heart, the book and the author wins!
